Today I’d like to talk about the “Hedgehog Concept.” The Hedgehog Concept was created by James C Collins. in his book Good to Great. This concept flows from the deep understanding from the intersection of 3 circles:
- What are you deeply passionate about?
- What can you be the best in the world at?
- What best drives your economic or resource engine?
James says transformations from good to great come about from a series of good decisions that are made consistently with the hedgehog concept above supremely well executed over a long period of time. Decisions that are made within the intersections of these 3 circles is your hedgehog. This is where you will shine, you’ll have purpose.
What is your hedgehog? I urge you to find your hedgehog.
